F-03A Integrated Amplifier

SKU: F-03A Category:


Class A Reference Model

Setting out to create one of the most desirable integrated amplifiers available,
Esoteric brought together a fully balanced preamplifier and a Class-A power amplifier-both directly
derived from its well-respected Grandioso line-to created a new reference for integrated
amplifiers that gives full expression to the smooth, full-bodied tones and delicately shaded
textures of your favorite music. Featuring distinctive dual monaural construction that extends
through all stages, from preamplifier inputs through to the final stage of its power amplifier
output, the F-03A Integrated Amplifier brings out the full audio potential of Esoteric’s highly
regarded K and N Series of digital players.

F-Series Philosophy: Basic and Complete

Representing a new generation of integrated amplifiers, Esoteric’s new F Series has been
thoroughly invested with proven results gained in the development of our flagship Grandioso
line of separate amplifiers. With the goal of capturing all the inherent warmth and texture of
music, not only were the outstanding expressive powers of the Grandioso line pursued, the
utmost limits of audio performance were also concentrated into an integrated configuration
that offers excellent usability combined with an attractiveness that more than compensates for
the limitations of their size. Basic and Complete. With sights set on creating a unique
presence in the category, the Esoteric F Series is born.
